Posh looking .75 litre cork and caged bottle poured into 3 Leffe stemmed tulip/chalices on 20th Dec 13.

Looked fine, an orange hue to the golden almost clear body, with a white covering that hung around: nicely carbonated, you could see the bubbles rising through the beer.

It went a bit downhill after that: the aroma was grainy and slightly fruity but as the beer warmed it became metallic and not so pleasant.

The taste also went iffy as it warmed a little, started off crisp and sharp with a semi-sweet lead it then turned on me; again being metallic, the alcohol also became apparent in the mouth.

Drink it fast and cold or not at all.

Another disappointing brew from the Leffe guys. Maybe it's their best, but overall it is again lacking something that would make me happy.

L: dark golden look, with nice lasting top, with fine bubbles.
S: the Leffe-yeast is very mentionable, malty but milder than the regular Leffe blond.
T: difficult to say, malt with a touch of citrus;
M: round, alcohol feels too strong, though it's only 7,5%, overall a bit disharmonic;
O: this seems the best Leffe can, and it's quite okay, but I find it still a bit too poor

This beer has a golden color with an orange hue. The body has a good bit of carbonation to the body that leads to the ivory head. There is a decent lace. It has a great crisp smell with a hoppy finish but mainly clove, yeast and malt dominate. This beer had a nice hop presence but was not as strong as I thought. I like the citrus flavor mixed with spice. It has a medium feel.
